This happened for me with a house key

My decorator sim lives in an Evergreen Harbor apartment. Her BFF who has a key showed up to her gig at the Caliente house. I revoked key privileges to stop this happening.

 

Separately, she's been having a romance with a sim who got jealous of her flirting with a celeb one night at a bar. The next morning he showed up at her decorator gig. They had an argument, and she got fired from the gig. He did not have an apartment key.

 

I suspect the first case involving a keyholder might be a bug, but the second case with the jealous sim (he wasn't even her boyfriend) is by design?

 

Incidentally, I have been having an issue for some time now with keyholders of both houses and apartments showing up when my sims are on vacation.

I'm also having this occur in two saves with a Willow Creek residence key, Brindleton Bay key, and an Eco Apartment key. Keys were given to friends, and the friends will show up at the gigs. It's not every time, though it is often. I'm using no mods currently.

I am also seeing this issue, with all of the packs installed. My decorator sim gave an apartment key (City Living) to Akira Kibo (jealous sim/boyfriend), who turned up at the commercial renovation lot, and did not have the Send Home option or other ability to remove.  In this gig I was also unable to reveal the renovations to client, as they disappeared promptly after loading onto the lot after being called to return. This may not be related to the presence of Akira, but I thought I would mention it just in case.

My decorator Sim lives in an apartment and has given a few keys out. But sometimes when I do a gig, one of the sims I gave a key to will turn up at the lot I'm renovating. It's always the same Sim as well.
